  Intro:        C


        C                                F        
 I was talking to a lady a few days ago
       C                       G
 And these are the words she said
         C
 If you see my child somewhere
         F                 C
 As you journey here and there
                               G            C
 Tell him I'm waiting for my child to come home


        C                      F           C
 I am waiting and waiting for my child to come
       C                     F            G
 I'm waiting and waiting for my child to come
          C
 If you can't come home
             F               C
 Could you please send me a letter
                 G               C
 A letter would mean so much to me


         C
 Oh my child may be somewhere
              F
 On his sick bed
         C                            G
 With no one there to rub his aching head
         C
 Oh my child may be somewhere
                  F
 In some lonely jail
       C       G              C      (G)
 With no one there to go his bail

       C                  F             C
 If I only knew what town my child was in
                                       G
 I'll be there on that early morning train
         C
 And no matter what's crime
            F                      C
 Lord you know that this child is mine
                                    G            C
 That's why I'd be waiting for my child to come home


        C                      F           C
 I am waiting and waiting for my child to come
       C                      F           G
 I'm waiting and waiting for my child to come
          C
 If you can't come home
             F               C
 Could you please send me a letter
                 G               C
 A letter would mean so much to me


        C       G
 I am waiting, waiting
       C           F
 I am waiting and waiting
       C               G            F       C
 I am waiting for my child to come home
